Novel use of a magnetic coupling device to repair damage of the internal thoracic artery.

Abstract

At present, there is limited reported literature on the use of the magnetic anastomotic device Ventrica MVP in the coronary artery bypass surgery setting. The device has been primarily used to perform distal coronary anastomoses. We report for the first time the novel use of this magnetic coupling device as a technique to repair iatrogenic injury of the… (More)
